AOL will be going independent in December and they've unveiled their new branding. A new minimalist font has been selected, the "o" and the "l" have been lowercased, a hip period has been added. I love closure. Oh - and the company name will be set against an ever-changing image.
Here are six preview images sent to us by the hard workin' AOL press team (click for a larger view):
They've also released an artsy, abstract video demonstrating the change. What does it all mean?!!??!!
Personally, I love minimalism. I'm quite curious to see how it fits into the rest of the branding, which we'll have to wait a couple more weeks for.
In the meantime, leave your first impressions in the comments below.
